unemployment rate ticked up to something governor romney will emphasize, higher than when the president took office. that's the headline number. i agree with austan. the fact you had 171,000 jobs this month and i would add it is the trend for the pasten couple of months is higher, about 170,000 for fe the past couple of months and that's a good sign. one thing i would say is while that is better than average, the number of jobs created per month since the turnaround in early 2010 has been 140,000 a month so this is a little better than that. one disadvantage of that is you need 119,000 per month to keep with pace with population growth. a what this means is with 170,000 you are adding 50,000 per month. if you play it out it will take 13 years to make up for the jobs lost during the recession and keep pace with population growth. >> what about on top of all of that, let's talk about this super storm sandy. a terrible human and personal toll of course. what impact does it have on the economy, in the region and across the country? what do you think, ed? >> storms have a big immediate affec
